Introducing... The Beatles

Introducing...The Beatles is the first Beatles album released in the United States. Originally scheduled for a July 1963 release, the album came out on January 10, 1964 on Vee-Jay Records, ten days before Capitol's Meet the Beatles!. It was the subject of much legal wrangling, but ultimately, Vee-Jay were permitted to sell the album until late 1964, by which time it had sold more than 1.3 million copies. Huge controversy surrounds the legibility and legality of this album. Versions differ as covers and song selections changed. (I have the second version).
